We are back from Houston already. It was another "slingshot" trip. We left after work yesterday and went to the new dr's this morning. We met with Donnie's new dr and discussed clinical trials and what we hoped that we could accomplish.
Donnie does qualify for a trial that they are doing there. It is a combination of 3 drugs that are already FDA approved. They just havent been tried together this way. It is a very expensive treatment and the insurance may deny it because of one of the drugs. Hopefully, they won't.
Once they get the insurance approved, we will go back, he will have blood tests done, an EKG and if that is all ok he will start the new treatments. He will have to have treatment every 4 days. I know, every 4 days. Wow, that is a lot of traveling. But we are willing to do whatever it takes to fight this disease.
We were told that they would have an answer about insurance within 3-5 days.
Say extra prayers that the insurance comes thru. I am off to bed now. I am exhausted!!!
love to all
